“There is a world that exists outside of what happens to you.”

Yes. And I am asking you to consider the world outside yours.

I completely recognize that, as a white female, I have privilege you don’t. I never said that women don’t have privilege or that white people don’t have privilege. Please do not presume what I think.

I’m not negating your lack of privilege with my lack of privilege. Don’t bring a knife to a gun fight, my friend.
